Bangladesh: An Intercultural Mosaic, written by Dr. Anwar Dil is an extraordinary book in conception and production. It is the first book of its kind and can claim to have ushered in a new category in literary canon. The author has written four books in this fabulous series, the other three being Bangladesh: An Intercultural Memoir, Bangladesh: An Intercultural Panorama, and Bangladesh: An Intercultural Collage. The volume and scope of these books, judged by their contents, are prodigious, evoking awe and wonder about the author\'s intellectual scholarship and emotional involvement, the two blending seamlessly. Only a person with deep interest and limitless curiosity to know about a people, its history and variegated culture and enduring love and respect for those persons discussed could produce a book (books) of such sweeping excellence and gripping interest. The books in the series are products of fond recollections of the past, painstaking research and unostentatious articulation of genuine feelings of the heart and the mind. Above all, they reveal the intensity of passion that went into their writing. It is a labor of love par excellence. ... Hasnat Abdul Hye Distinguished Man of Letters, Dhaka
